You may have a break caliper hanging on the passenger side. I would recommend pulling the wheel and caliper off and inspect it. Make sure the piston is not hung up and all of the slides are functional and not gummed up with brake dust. Verify pads move freely in the caliper, clean and scrape off rust, brake dust, debris, etc..
